NASA Chooses Venus To Be Next Space Exploration Mission

Unde NASA's mission on discovering the thinkable dangerous cosmic objects that roams near the earth surface by 2020, NASA is going to explore the noxious twin of Earth-Venus and for the similar it is going to announce the name of final likely missions under its Discovery program during a press discussion at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday. All possible NASA's missions are the following:

Near Earth Object Camera (NEOCam)

Intended with a wide field camera and an infrared telescope NEOCam will explore all possible hazardous asteroids near to earth 10 times more than any NEOs can discovered to date. Deep Atmosphere Venus Investigation of Noble gases, Chemistry, and Imaging.


It will amount the chemical and atmospheric characteristics of Venus by travelling on its atmosphere for 63 minutes. It will allow us to find the answers for many unexplained mysteries related to Venus surface and its atmospheric interface with the nearby planet's atmosphere.


This is one of the five finalists that will observe the asteroids of Jupiter Trojan. Scientists think that it has the measurement information about the entire history of solar system.


Asteroid 16 psyche is thought to be one of the heaviest among all other M-type asteroid and is the visible iron core of Protoplanet. With a 2-years mission, psyche spacecraft mission will study the origin of universal core by examining those psyches. The Venus Emissivity, Radio Science, InSAR, Topography, and Spectroscopy

Mission (VERITAS)

Aim of VERITAS is to observe about volcanic eruption, tectonic plates impact timing and history by taking high resolution maps of Venus crust. Venus is known as one of the very acidic planet where mere survival for some hours in unbearable due to its extensive heat and harsh surroundings. Russia's Venera 13 lander was the last to endure on the surface of Venus for 2 hours.

In 2014, a total of, 27 proposals have been given to the agency; and out of which, 5 have been finalized. If these missions get a GO signal, the trip may cost around $500 million to uncover the unexplained and unidentified of Venus and the rest of the solar system.
